It may soon be a smoother ride through the town of Newton.
Town leaders were notified today they will get $244,000 from the state to repave 11 streets in the town.
The town will match that grant with $27,000 to pay for the project.
Leaders say the new pavement on the roads should encourage better revenue for the city.
“One of the streets, Hartford Street, is a heavily traveled street. Even out of town people come over it every day, and I think it will help traffic pick up through town, which should help our retail businesses,” says Newton Councilman District 3, Jeff Jordan.
Some of those streets include Hartford Street, Mcreal Street and Candy Height.
